Looks like a Pumpkinseed or Bluegill sunfish.
nice sunfish. i'm leaning more towards pumpkinseed. it's only worth what you think it's worth. I think i've eaten this type fish before.
I think it is called a Sunfish. The Piranha may eventually nip at it until "there ain't no-mo".. :eek:
definitely a pumpkinseed. very nice looking fish and i'm looking forward to adding a couple to a native tank this summer. they are farely common in the norhth eastern US. they are probably too aggressive to have in most tanks. please let us know how long he lasts with the piranha.
